Enterprise Applications Migrated to Cloud
For almost a decade, Sourced has been assisting leading global enterprises in highly regulated industries to migrate their applications and workloads from physical datacentres to the AWS cloud platform.
As a trusted advisor, Sourced ensures that its clients understand cost-benefits and helps to define business objectives prior to launching their migration journey. Success metrics are clearly articulated and used as a guide to achieving this critical enterprise-wide transformation.
Drivers vary from cost reduction, datacentre exit to eliminating technical debt, enabling application elasticity and driving greater innovation. Once identified, one approach or a combination of approaches is selected, depending on the findings of a rigorous application portfolio assessment. Applications are then re-hosted, re-platformed, re-architected or retired depending on the client’s skills and capabilities, timelines and overall IT strategy.
Once migrated, Sourced works collaboratively with the client to enable a smooth transition to ongoing operational best practices by ensuring appropriate tool selection.
At Sourced, we believe there’s a better way of doing IT, including DevOps.
With almost 10 years of AWS experience, our highly trained DevOps consultants are focused on delivering businesses outcomes that help drive enterprises forward in a split-second world. With some of the largest and most heavily regulated global enterprises as clients, we truly understand the challenges surrounding demands for ever-faster software delivery, without sacrificing governance and security.
We work side-by-side with client teams to truly understand business drivers and implement high-velocity application delivery frameworks that support software development. We believe that being deeply embedded in a client’s organization facilitates knowledge transfer and ensures the enterprise continues to be successful after the engagement.
Our opinionated approach to developer innovation on the cloud is both an art and a science that aims to:
- Introduce automation as a way of reducing friction and standardising application delivery;
- Ensure transparency and consistency through immutable workloads and infrastructure as code that eliminates long term technical debt;
- Embed organisational risk, compliance and security postures into DevOps friendly pipelines at the beginning of the process, not as an afterthought.
We continue to work closely with our key strategic partners, most notably, AWS, Palo Alto, Datadog, Splunk, Puppet and Trend Micro amongst others to ensure that our clients continue to leverage the latest advances in technology.
Financial Services Capabilities
The global financial services industry is undergoing rapid evolution. Consumer demand for quality digital channels, driven by the “app economy”, is driving massive disruption. For financial institutions (FIs), it’s no longer possible to avoid change. In today’s world, standing still invites risk whereas embracing change helps to manage and reduce risk.
Sourced, in partnership with AWS, helps navigate this new terrain, charting a secure course and helping to bridge the gap between hyper-scale cloud technologies and the regulatory and operational requirements of global FIs. Our roots are in financial services, giving us an unrivaled understanding of the industry’s unique security and governance requirements.
Today, we leverage AWS on three continents to help FIs increase velocity, speed innovation and manage costs.
An AWS Premier Consulting Partner, Sourced’s strengths include a strong body of work across CCoE advisory, DevOps enablement, workload migration, and data intelligence. With an international reach, our strong team of certified AWS consultants is steeped in a culture of quality and innovation that ensures out-of-the-box thinking and successful business outcomes. In addition, Sourced-developed best practices and IP such as our Cloud at Scale Foundations™ program offer proven methodologies and a platform to accelerate the successful transformation of traditionally data centre-focused FIs into innovation-driven, cloud-based enterprises.
Our FI experience and expertise with AWS transcends technology to include people, tools and processes. This holistic approach ensures rapid and successful enterprise-wide cloud adoption with a focus on operational efficiency, reduced risk and value realisation.
